Eamonn Holmes revealed fears he will DIE during a breathing masterclass on today’s This Morning.
Breathing coach Rebecca Dennis told the presenters that we are all so stressed and anxious that we are not breathing properly.
She said teenagers and adults are only using a third of the respiratory system, so we need to relearn how to breathe like babies.
Her intriguing revelation shocked Eamonn, who was concerned that he might be sent to an early grave.
Eamonn admitted: "I worry maybe I’m not breathing enough and could pass away by not doing it right."
Mocking his fears, Ruth Langsford replied: "That’s a bit dramatic."
Eamonn said: "It’s very important. The older you get the less you breathe until you die."
Rebecca gave the presenters some new techniques to try out in the studio.
She said: "There’s many different breathing techniques. In a nutshell breath work helps people understand how they feel by changing rhythms of their breathing. We’re all breathing 20,000 times a day."
The breathing coach said Eamonn and Ruth were using their shoulders rather than their diaphragm.
Eamonn said: "My trouble is every time I look at my wife I lose my breath."
This Morning viewers were not convinced by the breathing masterclass.
One viewer said: "Are you breathing correctly?? Erm in my 33rd year on the planet so yea I think I’ve got it down to a Tee"
"Can’t say I’ve ever worried about what people think about my breathing technique…," added another.
A third said: "So do people actually pay her to learn how to breathe?"
